Indoor Play Houses

I’ve got a case of mom drool.

These indoor play homes are just adorable!   Many of them are ones that you can make yourself (or copy the concept of the for-purchase play house kit).

I think I want to hide with a book in one of these nooks!

Make a walk-in cardboard box house.   Our local hardware store lets us take their big appliance boxes if they haven’t broken them down yet – makes my kids day!!

You can make a wigwam out of newspaper.   This tutorial is super easy to follow after you cover it your kids will have a super fun home to hide in!

And if you have way, way too many boxes, you can create a maze.   This one was uploaded from someone in a park in Japan.

Your kids can learn about geometry and how angles connect and interact with this fun dome shaped cardboard house.

Indoor Play House Kits:

Isn’t this little book nook adorable?   It is the shape of a house, but has an open concept so you can see what your kids are doing.

Out of all the houses, I think this Boxy Play House is the one I would love to make.   It looks like it could work with any gender and age!

You can create a mini-house for your dolls using a book case.   These “building” doors transform the shelves into homes.

Do you have an empty corner?   This play house hutch would be a great addition to a play room.

Fabric Hiding Spots

This homemade teepee takes five minuets to put-up and is easy to hide away when your child is finished playing.   Great indoors or out!

If your kids have an elevated bed, consider adding a long “skirt” around the bed frame to become your kids’ play house.

This is super simple!   It is a sheet-house handing from tension rods.   You can transform a hallway into a fun play place.

Transform a tablecloth into a hiding house.   My kids love hiding under a sheet under the table, this is even better!
